My Top Three

1) Jokerman
A hauntingly beautiful masterpiece that explores the complexity of human emotions and the elusive nature of truth. Dylan’s lyrics are filled with metaphors that are open to interpretation, which gives the song a sense of mystery and intrigue. The jokerman himself is a mysterious figure who is both a trickster and a prophet, and Dylan’s use of biblical imagery adds to the song’s depth and complexity.

2) Sweetheart Like You
A love song with a twist. The lyrics tell the story of a man who has been hurt in the past by a woman, but still longs for love. The song is filled with Dylan’s trademark poetic lyrics and catchy melody. It’s a song that speaks to the heart of anyone who has been hurt in love, yet still has hope for a happy ending.

3) I and I
A deeply introspective and philosophical exploration of the self. With its haunting melody and thought-provoking lyrics, the song invites the listener to reflect on their own existence and the nature of reality. Dylan grapples with the idea of duality, questioning whether the self is truly separate from the world around it.
